Taking to Instagram to show off their recent purchase earlier, Kady gave fans a quick glimpse at the old fashioned bungalow.
Tagging ‘ourbungalowproject’ the star explained: “So the house has gone through, we’ve just picked up the keys and we’re in our future home.”
Kady and her former Towie star beau, 25, created an Instagram account for their new home in February, called Our Bungalow project, which is run by Kady and has attracted a whopping 53.k followers since it was launched.
Kady began by giving her fans a guided tour- the open plan living room
Earlier today, Kady gave fans a guided tour of the ground floor of the bungalow, which they plan to renovate into a five bedroom house.
The old fashioned bungalow currently has a vintage feel to it, with light green painted walls, open brick work, a fireplace and worn down pink carpets.
It features an open plan living and dining area, which Kady says was “the reason they fell in love with it”, as well as a large garden with huge patio area and “plenty of room” for Kady’s Pomeranian Coby to play in.
Kady also revealed that the house had several vents where the heating originally came out of the floor and seveal small vintage radiators scattered about the house.

The ground floor of the bungalow also features a small kitchen and a room that was originally a bedroom- which currently feature old appliances and have been decorated to match the living area.
Although work has only just begun on the renovation, the couple have regularly been using the Instagram page to ask for design inspiration on their new pad and have shared the ground floor plan for their project with their followers.
The floor plan features an open plan living room/ kitchen/ dining area, a study, a utility room, a cinema room and a gym.
Kady explained: “So here it is! the final design of the ground floor! This is everything we have dreamed of and I’m so excited to put this drawing to life!
Kady admitted that she loved the huge garden as there was plenty of room for her dog Coby to play
The tiny kitchen will be opened up as part of the ‘open plan living area’
“We will be having a lounge/cinema room which will be extra snug and cosy, an office for Myles, a downstairs toilet, a utility room (which I’m so excited for) a garage which we will be converting into a gym OR we will make one at bottom of garden still TBC.
“And last but definitely not least I am so so so in love with the open kitchen/living/dining area, it’s going to be designed so modern and spacious eeeee I can not wait!”
Although, with others clearly wondering what the upstairs of the couple’s new house will look like, they have explained that they had still not decided on the final layout for the upstairs floor plan.
She continued: “Bring on the tantrums, stress and tears for everyone direct messaging we are still deciding the upstairs plan need to change a couple of things, we will show you as soon as it’s finalised!”
And one of the downstairs bedrooms will become a cinema room

And despite the couple recently revealing that they would have to wait up to eight weeks to begin renovation works on the property due to planning permission, it seems that they have been gathering lots of inspiration for when they get started.
In the bedroom, Kady revealed that she would be moving her luxurious king sized suede double bed and matching ottoman over to her new place.
Meanwhile, for the downstairs area, she said that the reality couple have been scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration for their open plan living area.
Kady also admitted that they plan to keep the space ‘light and open’, with similar furnishings, a large island in the kitchen which features a breakfast bar and a long dining room table that is perfect for entertaining guests.

In order to let in more light into the open space, the Love Island beauty also revealed that they are considering a roof lantern after a fan made the suggestion.
She said: “It will let in so much light and will be beautiful in spring/summer!”
And in the bathroom, it seems that Kady is keen on a rustic feel, as she quizzed her followers about having copper in the bathroom, with a snap of a copper bathtub.
“I do like copper in the bathroom but I feel like it will go out of fashion quickly? Practical or just fashion?” she asked.

Moving in together seems like the next natural step for the pair, who began dating in August last year.
Soon after they started dating, Kady joined Myles on The Only Way Is Essex and the pair were regularly spotted arguing with Myles’ ex girlfriend Courtney Green.
But, The Sun Online revealed that the couple were among nine famous faces who had been axed in a huge cast shake up.
And the accountant soon took to Instagram to share the news and revealed that he planned to spend this year focusing on his career and his relationship.

ITVBE Kady made her Towie debut in September- but the pair among the 9 stars to be axed at the start of this year
He said: “After an eventful two years at TOWIE with many highs and lows I have taken the decision upon myself to leave TOWIE.
“When something no longer fulfils you, makes your grow as a person or even just makes you happy it’s best to leave it in the past.
“This year I am solely focusing on my career and my relationship with Kady as they are the most important things to me right now, and the show wasn’t benefiting either of them.
“As most of you will probably know TOWIE brought out a side to me I wasn’t always proud of, as much as I enjoyed my time on it I started to find it very toxic and negative environment for myself.”

He continued: “I am the happiest I’ve been in a very long time and I would like to keep it that way by removing any negativity in my life.
“I’m going to use my social media so you can all get an insight of my life and the highlights and get to know the real me, and more importantly so I can control how my life is shown instead of it being in the hands of TV editors who are strangers to me.
“Thank you for all your support the last two years, I have grown a lot as a person and I will forever be thankful for the experience and the life lessons it taught me.”
